Very Easy Appetizer #2

This is the time of year when people drop in, families sit around the tree and often we find ourselves in need of a quick appetizer. This is the second of three family favorites that are so simple anyone can do them...quickly and easily. The first was the Pitty Pat recipe you can find here. Today's recipe is even easier and the best part is you can keep the ingredients at home and make a batch quickly in a "food emergency"! I don't even have a name for these. We call them "those Triscuit things" around here. I guess we could call them Triscuit Treats or Cheesy Crackers...if we must name them.

Preheat the broiler

For a larger group, you may want to double this recipe

8 oz. shredded cheese. I prefer the white/yellow mix, but if you have cheddar it works fine.
1/2 cup real mayo (I think you could do this with lite mayo, it might change the taste slightly)
1/2 cup olives (green or black) sliced or chopped.
1 box Triscuits

Mix the first 3 ingredients together.

Top Triscuits with generous spoonful of the cheese mixture.

Place under the broiler for about 2-3 minutes until cheese melts and slightly bubbles. Don't walk away from your oven, these cook quickly. Remove from oven and let cool a few moments. Serve warm. They also taste fine after they cool...but, they won't last that long! How simple is that? I promise you will be surprised at how good these are.
